At Pasteur Elementary School, Sound Tracks Plus students are exposed to Chinese culture through hands-on music and dance workshops. Their curiosity is piqued by demonstrations of ancient Chinese instruments, like the Erhu (a Chinese violin/fiddle). Students engage in the music by learning to play Chinese drums, gongs, and cymbals. Other students will take center stage, learning steps to a traditional Chinese dance called the “Lion Dance.” On June 13th, the students will dress in costumes and give a final performance for their parents and classmates.
Musicians: Brent Roman, Chihsuan Yang, Jeff Handley, Brandon Podjasek
